Many people get stressed over the holidays going Christmas Shopping. Insider Tip: do your shopping at an amazing holiday destination with great shopping deals and exclusives like Paris. Here are some of the top shopping spots in Paris to get your Christmas shopping fix.

1. Famous Shopping Streets - A Paris shopping vacation is not complete without visiting the Champs Elysees, which features all the top designer brands. The Rue de Rivoli is another option for more affordable international chain stores like the Body Shop, Mango, H&M, Gap and Zara. Watch out for Boulevard Haussmann, according to Habitat New York, which houses the Galeries Lafayette and Au Printemps, prime store fronts for trendy French boutiques and stores.

BHV or Bazar de l'Hotel de Ville, on the other hand, features more economical prices and is usually crowded. (READ: The Best Travel Destinations In 2017 According To A-List Celebrities)

4. Passages - These are pedestrian walkways all around the cities covered and featuring smaller traditional shops. Some of the best include Passage Jouffroy, adjacent to the Musee Grevin, a great place to visit after a busy day of shopping. Other options include Galerie Vivienne, Passage du Grand Cerf, Galerie Vero-Dodat, Passage du Havre and Passage Choiseul. If the variety of shopping choices doesn't amaze you, the historical, narrow corridors, marble floors and glass shopfronts will.

5. Flea Markets - For some of the most bargain-friendly shopping you'll ever do, paris has a wide assortment of flea markets and thrift alleys. St-Ouen Flea Market is the largest in the world, while the Monteruil Flea Market sells mostly antiques at prices you can haggle for. Ile-de-la-Cite is a great place to visit but will have higher prices due to its central location. Same goes for the Quai de la Megisserie, which is beautifully set adjacent to the River Seine.
